Computer Networks: A Systems Approach, Sixth Edition, explores the key principles of computer networking, using real world examples from network and protocol design. Using the Internet as the primary example, this best-selling classic textbook explains various protocols and networking technologies. The systems-oriented approach encourages students to think about how individual network components fit into a larger, complex system of interactions. This sixth edition contains completely updated content with expanded coverage of the topics of utmost importance to networking professionals and students, as provided by numerous contributors via a unique open source model developed jointly by the authors and publisher. Hallmark features of the book are retained, including chapter problem statements, which introduce issues to be examined; shaded sidebars that elaborate on a topic or introduce a related advanced topic; What's Next? discussions that deal with emerging issues in research, the commercial world, or society; and exercises. This book is intended primarily for graduate or upper-division undergraduate classes in computer networking. It will also be useful for industry professionals retraining for network-related assignments, as well as for network practitioners seeking to understand the workings of network protocols and the big picture of networking.

"In the book, consisting of 9 chapters, individual chapters can be grouped into three functional blocks. In the first one, the authors present the principles of accessing computer networks and the basic issues of connecting and integrating various network solutions along with the principles of datagram communication. In the second segment of the book, the emphasis is placed on the quality of communication, in particular flow and congestion control, allowing to counteract overload phenomena in communication between end users.... The last chapters of the book concern data formatting, network security and the principles of realization of selected network applications.An important supplement to the book are numerous examples and a large number of exercises and tasks for the readers. The authors add sketchy solutions to some of them. The book gives therefore interesting and useful material for people who want to learn the basics of computer networks operation." --zbMath/European Mathematical Society and the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities
